...Sometimes there just isn't enough time for poli-blogging.
Well, to be honest, I'm not really sure.
Maybe it's because we have been working pretty hard at getting another paper out the last few weeks. This one has been a bit of a slog because the gradual student who originally did the work has moved on and is now doing his post-doc stint on the other side of the continent. All of which led to a whole lot of Skyping and long distance experiment doing by folks in my lab who became his remote hands after we got the reviews back from the editor. And while I hated those reviews when we first got them, now that there is a light at the end of the tunnel it's hard pretend that they haven't made the work much better.
But that's not really it.
Maybe, instead, it's because the geezers have a couple of rock and roll shows coming up. One will be in a cabin in the woods and one will be in a fancy hotel ballroom....Gosh....I wonder which one will be more fun. Anyway...There are new tunes to be learned which means a bit of frenzy of actual practicing away from the band so that I don't drive the lead guitar genius guy crazy...All joking aside, really fun part of it all is that Bigger E will be singing with us for both shows.
But that's not really it either.
To be really, really honest I think a wee bit of the ennui has snuck its way into my poli-blogging hideaway.
But not to worry, because I'm pretty sure it will soon pass (as it has done so before).
In the meantime, carry-on and be sure to visit all those sites on the blog-roll over there on the left side of the page that are doing all the good stuff for all the right reasons.
